to 24 other people by an apache helicopter. he was shipped by the u.s. military after this allegation came out from baghdad to a holding cell in kuwait. he's been there approximately six weeks now. why is bradley manning being held in kuwait? is this an offshore guantanamo for a u.s. soldier who has alleged to leak information to the press? it doesn't seem to be right to me. >> i agree with him on that. we thank julian for his time today for when we can expect the next round of documents. that'll will out some time in the next couple of months. >> as we take a moment here, coming up on "the dylan ratigan show." developing news as the senate tries to limit corporate spending on political campaigns or allow them to spend freely but keep it secret would be more accurate. plus republicans running away from andrew bright babart but n andrew steele. why they're meeting in swanky beverly hills later this week. ne market is complicated. you've seen the signs. that's why having the right real estate agent is more important than ever. at, you can find experts in short sales or bank-ow

. >> the comment, widely seen as a public statement of what arab leaders have been telling the u.s. leaders privately, however the uae is furiously backpedaling now saying it does not favor the use of force against iran. mark, again, i want to start with you. look, i don't like the iranian government, i'll be honest with you. i think they stole the election. they are fundamentalist muslims. i don't agree with their ideology, but why do we get to have nuclear energy and israel gets to have nuclear energy but iran is not allowed? >> well, nuclear energy is not the issue unless you're going to frame the issue in terms of the way the iranians want to frame it which is, hey, we're just doing this so we can have, you know, nuclear energy. everybody in the world knows that's not what they are doing. they are doing it to develop a nuclear bomb, and i suspect that this statement from the uae reflects, i don't suspect it, i'm virtually certain, that it reflects a very widespread but heretofore unspoken prayer among most of the muslim majority nations that israel, we haven't even talked about the u.s.
to you and me $34 billion extra printed out of our government. this man to thank. the newest u.s. senate, his yes vote helping the dems overcome another gop filibuster. so with final passage, 2.1 million americans will be able to make their next mortgage payment or afford food or medical care that they are desperately in need of. but as has become the american way, whether we're talking about jobs or the banks, the answer is to simply print money we do not have. we are not addresses the real crisis. that we're living in a so-called capital economy, that not only doesn't have capital, be tu incentives are to not invest it in the country. >>> our first guest has been out of work in the real estate industry since january of 2009. her unemployment benefits expired earlier this month. we welcome you to the program. when you see a vote like this, what do you think? >> it's about time. it's about time. it shouldn't be about politics. it should be about the people. >> and do you think that the government continuing to authorize unemployment benefits -- to my this looks like a band-aid. an essent

that is blowing the lid, so to speak, off the hidden world of u.s. intelligence. years long work by "washington post" reporters investigation, an investigation uncovering a top secret network based on exploiting terror fears that have perpetrated throughout every fiber of our society. and have only increased every day since the september 11th attacks. the result, an everexpanding democracy that grows by the day. nobody knows if the agencies are helping anybody become safer. for instance, 33 different complexes dedicated to so-called top secret intelligence work this washington alone. physical buildings. that's the equivalent of 22 u.s. capitol buildings. top secret security clearances granted to 854,000 people. that's 1.5 times the entire population of washington, d.c. about 50,000 intelligence reports each year. such a large volume that the experts admit they can't get through it all. not to mention the money it is costing us, much of it spent on redundancy and waste. extraction continues here in new york by the banksters. people are out of work. americans in the paralysis of fear content to s

up after a massachusetts judge rules a federal same-sex marriage ban is unconstitutional. a u.s. district judge ruled it unconstitutional because it interferes with the right of a state to define marriage. the ruling grants same-sex married couples the same federal benefits as straight couples. the ruling only applies to massachusetts, but if it were upheld by a higher court, the supreme court, for example, gay marriage could be protected under the constitution, the same way interracial marriage was protected in the late 1960s. gay rights supporters are buzzing about a potential showdown on the steps of the supreme court many say it's likely to rule against them. or should they take a state-by-state approach through legislators and voter initiatives. i want you to give counsel to advocates of same-sex relations. would it be through the courts, or take your shot through the states and state legislators? >> i'm always advising gay rights advocates on marriage. you really pegged me there. what i would say is just to go about it the constitutional route. this is a democratic society
